    Actually in the Chicago are, 3 are 1080i, 4 are 720p, and 7 are 480p. And yes OTA is actually the best HD if you have good signal strength. Sports look better at 720p than 1080i.

    Hey,

    I thought you had to have a 1080p to actually play anything 1080. I mean it would play it but not up to it's full capabilities.

    You have to have a 1080p set to get the full 1080p experience. However, some (cheaper/older) sets only support up to 1080i. All DLP sets are progressive scan (720p or 1080p), though.

    1080i will play HD content that looks just as good as 1080p, but there might be quality loss during scenes with lots of motion/action.

    Technically 1080p is the better picture. But, like MysticE pointed out, there is very little content available in 1080p format outside of blurays.

    Hey,

    I see :) Alrighty well then it depends on your blu-ray collection and how much you like action.

    Aloha,
